REPORT OF TRUSTEES OF THE STATE LIBRARY. 



State Library, Sacramento, Cal., ) 
July 31, 1890. \ 

To his Excellency R. W. Waterman, Governor of California: 

We the undersigned, elected by the last Legislature a Board of State 
Library Trustees, held our first meeting March 1, 1890, and organized 
by the election of Hon. R. D. Stephens President, and W. D. Perkins 
State Librarian and ex officio Secretary of this Board. 

The number of volumes ostensibly turned over to us was 79,966, but 
the number turned over to our Secretary on April 7, 1890, was 73,597 
volumes. 

The late Librarian, T. H. Wallis, had just completed a catalogue of 
the books in the Library, but on checking the same we found a number 
of volumes missing, a list of which appears in the report of our Secre- 
tary. 

The amount of money turned over to our care was nominally $19,- 
972 91, but out of this we paid old bills, or for books previously ordered, 
the sum of $7,973 86, all of which will more fully appear by reference 
to the report of Librarian Perkins. 

Mr. Wallis, as Librarian, had ordered several thousand dollars' worth 
of books, as we contend, without authority of law, some of which were 
received and registered during the last month of his incumbency, con- 
trary to our express order. We therefore repudiated all these orders, 
and required all the dealers to file a waiver of all legal claims against 
the State on account thereof. In justice, however, to the dealers who 
had acted in good faith, all the books so delivered were purchased and 
paid for. Each case, after investigation, stood on its own merits, as 
each future case must do. 

After due consideration by the Trustees, it was deemed advisable to 
have the property of the State in the Library protected by insurance, 
and at a meeting held May 3, 1890, the President and Secretary of this 
Board were authorized to carry the views of the Trustees into effect. 
The property has been insured for $90,000, covering a period of three 
years from May 8, 1890, at a cost of $1,260. The following is a list of 
the insurance companies and the amounts: 



Insurance Company of North America $10,000 00 

American Insurance Company 10,000 00 

St. Paul Fire and Marine Insurance Company 10,000 00 

Continental Insurance Company 10,000 00 

•State Investment and Insurance Company of San Francisco 10,000 00 

Phoenix Insurance Company of Brooklyn 10,000 00 

Providence- Washington Insurance Company 10,000 00 

Westchester Fire Insurance Company of New York. 10,000 00 

Security Insurance Company 10,000 00 



Total $90,000 00

RBFOBT OF TRUSTEES OF STATE MRKAKY. 



We find a large number of volumes in the Library with covers off ami 
otherwise badly mutilated. We trace the fact of so many missing vol- 
umes and this mutilation to the fact that the Library has, to a large 
extent, been made one of circulation instead of one of reference. It has 
been the practice of many, if not all the State officers, to take books out 
of the Library and loan them to friends on the outside. We cannot 
believe that the Legislature ever intended to confer privileges on State 
officers, as citizens, not conferred on other citizens, and hence we con- 
strue the statute allowing State officers to take books from the Library, to 
refer to such books as each may deem necessary to aid him in the dis- 
charge of his official duties; but it certainly never intended to authorize 
each State officer to confer special privileges on any and all his friends. 
As we believe the State Library can under no circumstances become a 
circulating library, but that it is for the use of the people of the whole 
State, for use in the Library, we are considering rules to that end. 

We found that a large number of keys to the Library had been given 
out to various people, so that there was no responsibility for the proper 
care of the property of the State. We passed an order to have a new 
lock put on the main entrance, and that no keys should be delivered to 
any one except attaches. Since this time, however, the Library has 
been kept open on Sundays, and until 9 o'clock at night on week days. 

No inventory of the books and other property of the State had been 
taken for a great many years, and on taking possession of the property 
we deemed it necessary to take an inventory. There has been no proper 
classification of the books on the shelves, and we will have to under- 
take this work. The salary list has, therefore, appeared large, but in 
the course of a few months, when everything gets in working order, the 
amount can be reduced some $300 to .t400 a month. As stated by ex- 
Librarian Wallifl, the work has grown so that it will require a greater 
force than in the past, and it is economy in the end to have the work 
well done. 

We found several rooms and stairways in the Librar)' uncarpeted, 
and, as the carpet on the main floor had been down twenty-one years, 
and was badly worn, we ordered new carpets throughout. A great 
many books were piled around on the floors for want of a place to put 
them; the collection of maps were so hung as to be of no practical 
value, and places had to be made for all of them, which involved a con- 
siderable carpenter's bill. There was no water on the second floor, and 
we ordered the plumbing necessary to put it there. These and other 
necessary improvements have caused a large outlay, but we thought it 
best to do necessary work at once and be done with it. 

Respectfully submitted.

REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES 

FOR THE FORTIETH AND FORTY-FIRST FISCAL YEARS, BEGINNING 
JULY 1, 1888, AND ENDING APRIL 6, 1890. 



Sacramento, April 6, 1890. 

To R. D. Stephens, President of the Board : 

Sir : I have the honor to transmit my report of the State Library 
for the fortieth and forty-first fiscal years, ending April 6, 1890, and 
most respectfully ask that you make this a part of your report which 
will be made on June 30, 1890. 

TALBOT H. WALLIS, 

Secretary. 



SUPPLEMENTAL TO THE PART OF THE REPORT TO BE MADE BY THE 
TRUSTEES OF THE STATE LIBRARY JUNE 30, 1890. 

State Library, April 6, 1890. 

Tq R. D. Stephens, President of the Board of Trustees of the California 
State Library : 

Dear Sir: I have the honor to submit the following report of this 
department for the fortieth and forty-first fiscal years from July 1, 

1888, to April 6, 1890, and also, as per request of the Legislature of 

1889, some suggestions for needed changes in the law governing the 
State Library, and recommendations of the "Association of State Li- 
brarians." 

The number of volumes in the Library on July 1, 1888, was sixty- 
eight thousand four hundred and three volumes. The accessions since 
that time have been eleven thousand five hundred and sixty-two, mak- 
ing a total of seventy-nine thousand nine hundred and sixty-five, 
which the register shows in the Library on April 6, 1890. There have 
been added to the Library during the two terms that I have served,, 
from April 6, 1882, to April 6, 1890, twenty-five thousand eight hun- 
dred and nineteen volumes. 

On April 6, 1882, there was in the Library Fund $1,727 04, and on 
April 6, 1890, it contained $19,972 91, being an excess of $18,245 87 
over what there was in the Library Fund on April 6, 1882. A com- 
mittee of the Legislature of 1889 experted my books and found the 
State Library was indebted to me for the amount of $37 27, and I have 
this day balanced my accounts and find that there is due me from the 
same institution the amount of $22 38. 

There have been two catalogues completed since 1885, one of the Law 
Department, consisting of six hundred and sixty-five pages, and the

other of the General Department, of eleven hundred and seventy-two 
pages. The difficulties that arose in the preparation of the catalogue 
of the General Department were fully explained in the report of the 
Trustees for the thirty-eighth and thirty-ninth fiscal years, pages 8 
and 9. 

The crowded condition of the Library has necessitated the construc- 
tion of additional cases, and over one thousand three hundred shelves 
have been added since 1882 to make room for more than twenty thou- 
sand volumes. Room 64, from which the mineral cabinet was removed, 
was neatly fitted up and now contains the Medical Department, Supreme 
Court records, Patent Office reports, etc. 

Expenditures for carpentry, painting, plumbing, repairs, carpets, fur- 
niture, and extra help, which were absolutely needed, have been made 
from the Library Fund, or to be more specific, all the expenses were 
borne by this fund other than the salary of the Librarian, two deputies, 
and porter. 

Notwithstanding this expense and the number of books added, the 
fund is now in the most flourishing condition. The postage, expressage, 
cartage, and freight charges have always exceeded the small annual 
appropriation of $200 made by the Legislature. The amount appropri- 
ated should be at least $300 per annum, as the fund provided for the 
support of the Library must be heavily drawn upon to keep the institu- 
tion up to a high standard of usefulness. The register of this Library 
shows that we have nearly eighty thousand volumes. The histories of 
libraries have proven the fact that in their early years of existence 
the Librarians, in their eagerness to increase the number as rapidly as 
possible, register everything in sight. After twenty-five or thirty years 
elapse, it is found that there are hundreds of volumes short of the sup- 
posed registered number, and this is the case, not because they have been 
stolen, but because of their entire uselessness they have been destroyed. 
Patent medicine almanacs, temperance circulars, auction sales of furni- 
ture, advertisements, etc., have been included in the register, which have 
not been considered worthy of shelf room, and certainly not entitled to 
be placed in the catalogue. The Federal Government forwarded this 
Library several incomplete sets of Government publications, many of 
the duplicates of which have been registered. With the desire to com- 
plete one set in the Library, I returned to Washington nearly two thou- 
sand volumes and presented the public libraries in this State several 
hundred volumes more. 

During the month of January we missed several volumes out of the 
Library, but were unable to get any clew on which to base suspicion 
aipon any one in particular. Among the regular visitors was a young 
man who apparently was the last person to be guilty of theft, and who 
was always seen to leave the Library empty handed. Our suspicions 
were finally directed towards him, and upon investigation it was found 
that he had forwarded some books to relatives in a distant State. These 
were stopped in transit, and on inspection, found to belong to the Li- 
brary. The party was arrested, and sentenced to prison for three years. 
In addition to State Library books, I recovered at the same time several 
volumes belonging to the Odd Fellows' and Mechanics' Libraries of San 
Francisco, and to the Odd Fellows' and Public Libraries of Sacramento. 
The thief wore a loose-fitting overcoat provided with capacious inside 
pockets, enabling him to secrete large volumes with little fear of detec-

tion. I am perfectly satisfied that the loss of books from this Library 
is no greater than from other libraries of the same size, and is much 
less than was anticipated when the State Controller commenced to take 
an inventory of the volumes received during my term of office. The 
construction of the Library is such that it is very easy for any one 
inclined to theft to do so without detection. 

The Legislature of this State should pass a special law to provide for 
the punishment of the crime of stealing of books from libraries. Under 
the Code of this State the value of the property stolen, if it does not 
exceed $50, is only petit larceny, and it is very seldom that at any one 
time books of that value will be taken, notwithstanding the fact that 
the thief during the course of a few months may have taken several 
hundred dollars' worth. If the party detected and arrested is in good 
standing in the community in which he lives, as was the case of the 
party lately sentenced, it will be very difficult to show evidence neces- 
sary to convict of burglary. The following are a few extracts pub- 
lished in the Library Journal, volume 9, page 87, "Literary Larceny: " 

"It is astonishing," said State Librarian Tillinghast yesterday, "to witness the class 
of people who do most of the pilfering from our large libraries. As a rule they are pro- 
fessional men, lawyers, doctors, and even clergymen, who ordinarily would not be guilty 
of theft, but who seem to consider it quite pardonable to mutilate and carry off honks 
and engravings. I receive notices frequently, telling me to closely watch persons who 
frequent the State Library, as they are likely to get away with books or clippings if not 
looked after. Many of those regarding whom I am thus notified are persons who ordina- 
rily I never would suspect to be capable of such conduct." 

Volume 3, page 195, "Literary Thieves:" 

Even Webster's Unabridged has been hidden beneath the cloak of a visitor and carried 
off. Commonly, scarce and high priced books are the most in favor with these literary 
rogues, but instances are recorded where books that are to be had cheaply at the ordinary 
book-stands also attract their attention. Nor is it always persons who are without repu- 
tation who commit these acts. Several years ago one of the oldest and most learned 
professors in a university of St. Petersburg was detected in systematic pilfering, and 
several hundred valuable volumes recovered. Some years ago the Mercantile Library of 
Philadelphia missed a number of valuable books from its shelves, and the theft was 
traced to a doctor of a most respectable rank in society, and upwards of fifty volumes 
were recovered from him. 

Volume XII, page 553, "Book Stealing in Paris:" 

Look stealing seems to have been elevated into a regular trade in Paris, for, according 
to a return drawn up by the Prefecture of the Police, tlie number of persons prosecuted 
for this offense within the last two years has been one hundred and forty-five, of whom 
only five have been acquitted, while ninety others have been sentenced to fine or imprison- 
ment, and the remaining fifty are still awaiting their trial. The amount of bail lodged 
and the fees paid for hearing has exceeded £3,000, these sums being exclusive of counsel 
fees and other legal expenses. The report goes on to say that several publishers have 
received anonymously sums varying from £20 to £700 from persons who had stolen 
books from them, but who were impelled by either remorse or fear to make restitution. 
The publishers of illustrated works, encyclopaedias, and dictionaries are the greatest 
sufferers. Upward of ten thousand volumes have been seized and are now collected at 
the Palais de Justice for distribution among their rightful owners. 

The agricultural, horticultural, viticultural, medical, engineering, 
musical, educational, and fine art departments have been well provided 
with standard publications. The entomological and botanical depart- 
ments have been materially increased, and when the outstanding orders 
are filled it can be truly said that no other library in the United States 
can boast of as complete and valuable a collection. It has been our 
policy to purchase all the county maps of this State, as they were issued, 
and new maps of this State and of the United States when material

changes justified it. In 1889, we added to the Library a fine collection 
of large foreign maps, as follows: Standford's General Map of Europe, 
Austria-Hungary, Belgium, England and Wales, France, Germany, 
Greece, Ireland, Italy, Paris, Russia, Scotland, Spain and Portugal, 
Sweden, Denmark and Norway, Switzerland, Turkey. Asia, India, Japan, 
Africa, Abyssinia, South America, Argentine Republic, Australia, New 
Zealand, Mexico. Large accessions have been made of periodical publi- 
cations, in pursuance of our object of enhancing the reference value of 
the Library. Some of the more important of the acquisitions are as 
follows: Transactions of the Royal Society of London from 1801 to 
1888, Arclneologia, Anthropological Review, Asiatic Researches, Cottage 
Gardener, Curtis' Botanical Magazine (a splendid set, complete from 
1887), Edinburgh Philosophical Journal, Entomological Magazine, 
Floral World, Gardening, Geographical Magazine, Grevillea, Prize 
Essays and Transactions of the Highland and Agricultural Society of 
Scotland, Iron, Kitto's Journal of Sacred Literature, L'Electricien, Lit- 
tell's Living Age, The Lancet, Methodist Magazine, Monthly Micro- 
scopic Journal, Quarterly Journal of the Geological Society of London, 
Revue des Deux Mondes, Temple Bar, Zoist, Transactions of the Zoolog- 
ical Society of London, Calcutta Review, Reliquary, Jersey Cattle Club 
Register, Coates' Herd Register, General Stud Book, Entomologist, 
Mind, Transactions and Memoirs of the Royal Astronomical Society of 
London, in ninety-one volumes, Sowerby English Botany, The Florist. 
Sugar Cane, Transactions of the Ray Society, Transactions of the Lin- 
mean Society, 1791 to 1888, The Academy, All the Year Round (new 
series, forty volumes), American Journal of Obstetrics, Andover Review, 
L'Annee Scientifique et Industrielle, Annuaire Scientifique, Asiatic 
Quarterly Review, British Medical Journal, Chambers' Edinburgh 
Review, The Critic, English Mechanic, The Epoch, Foreign Quarterly 
Review, The Forum, Fraser's Magazine, Gardener and Forest, Good 
Words, from 1863, Hogg's Instructor, Illustrated London News, Irish 
Monthly Magazine, Journal of Forestry, Journal of the Franklin Insti- 
tute, Journal of the Statistical Society, London Quarterly Review, Mac- 
millan's Magazine, The Month, National Review, New Englander and 
Yale Review (new series), New Princeton Review, North American 
Journal of Homoeopathy, North of England Institute of Mining 
Engineers, Penny Magazine, Public Opinion, Racing Calendar, Royal 
Society of Canada, St. James' Magazine, Sanitary Institute of Great 
Britain, Saturday Review, Truth, and the Veterinary Review. 

Periodical publications are valuable, in view of the fact that they 
contain a vast amount of material not to be found elsewhere. They 
form an accurate index to contemporary thought', and the current num- 
bers are essential to all who would be progressive. Complete sets of 
such as are named above are not readily acquired, as their number is 
limited, and as time goes on their scarcity and value will continue to 
increase. 

The Law Department has been well provided for, and would be a 
credit to any State in the Union or foreign country. Its growth has 
been steady and uniform. We have purchased many valuable sets of 
legal periodicals, which are indispensable to the completeness of a law 
library. In 188G we gave an order for digests, court reports, compila- 
tions and revisions of the following: Province of Good Hope, New South 
Wales, New Zealand, Queensland, South Australia, Victoria, Ceylon,

India, Bombay, Bengal, Madras, Northwestern Provinces, and the West 
Indies. The greater part of this order has been filled, but it may be 
several years before it is completed, owing to the scarcity of the books. 
When it is, the Law Department of this Library will be the most com- 
plete in the United States. 

ASSOCIATION OF STATE LIBRARIANS. 

In pursuance of a request made at the last Legislature, I take pleas- 
ure in submitting the following: 

I had the honor, on May 8, 1889, at St. Louis, to call to order the State 
Librarians of the several States who met pursuant to a call by Califor- 
nia. We organized and adopted the name of the "Association of State 
Librarians." The following are a list of the permanent officers that 
were elected: President, Melvil Dewey; Vice-President, W. H. H. Taylor; 
Secretary and Treasurer, John P. Dunn, Jr. Executive Board: Presi- 
dent, Vice-President, and Secretary, with Talbot H. Wallis, State Libra- 
rian of California, and Wm. H. Egle, State Librarian of Pennsylvania. 

The meeting was a success in every respect. The resolutions adopted 
by the Convention, in which twenty-eight States were represented, were 
carefully drawn in such a manner as not to arouse opposition from any 
source. The result is that our entire action meets the hearty approval of 
the Executive and Educational Departments of the several States and 
Territories, the publishers and the booksellers of the United States, the 
National Bureau of Education, A. R. Spofford, Librarian of Congress 
(who is a member), and the press generally. We were admitted into the 
American Library Association and became a part of that body. We 
were not received as a mere matter of form, but they gave us their good 
will and assistance. Our actions were indorsed by such men as Justin 
Winsor, Librarian of Harvard College, and a leading writer of the day; 
W. F. Poole, Librarian of Newberry Library, Chicago, and the author of 
Poole's Index; C. A. Cutter, Librarian of the Boston Athenaeum; F. M. 
Crunden, President of the American Library Association; R. R. Bowker, 
publisher and editor of New York; C. A. Nelson, Librarian of Howard 
Memorial Library, New Orleans; W. R. Fletcher, Librarian of Amherst 
College, and editor of Poole's Index. Letters have been received from 
the leading publishers, booksellers, and men of prominence in the 
United States approving our actions and promising to assist us in this 
reform. The interest and support of such men is an evidence of a need 
of an improvement in the present system and a pledge that good results 
will be accomplished. Indiana, New York, Maine, Pennsylvania, and 
a few other States, have already answered our appeal and have remod- 
eled their library laws. William F. Poole, who is widely known through- 
out the United States, addressed a letter to our association in which he 
said the members of the Association of State Librarians should be in 
high spirit over the success of their meeting, and they should feel con- 
fident that this was the beginning of the revolution which will change 
the library system of the whole country. 

The following letter has been sent from Albany, New York, to the 
Governors and State Superintendents of the several States:

REPORT OF TRUSTEES OF STATE LIBRARY. 



^ State Library, Albany, N. Y., February 24, 1890. 

Dear Sir: By direction of the Association of State Librarians, we submit to you below 
the resolutions adopted at its first conference, held in St. Louis, May 8-11, 1889. 

This association had its origin in a widespread conviction that the proper scope and 
dignity of State Libraries was not yet fully recognized in most States; that there was no 
uniformity in laws governing State Libraries and regulating exchanges of public docu- 
ments; and that it was desirable to bring about by legislative enactment an approx- 
imately uniform system of laws, usages, and rules for their management. 

A State Library should not only lie a complete reference library for all branches of the 
Government, executive, judicial, and legislative, and the repository of all materials for- 
local history and biography, but it should also contain and furnish abundant facilities 
for using all desirable books of information relating to special industries and pursuits of 
the State, or calculated to lead to the introduction of industries and pursuits suited to it 
but hitherto neglected. In short, it should be fitted to serve all interests of the State by 
infusing into their conduct the highest intelligence and skill. 

In the language of Hon. N. H. It. Dawson, ex-United States Commissioner of Educa- 
tion : 

"The value of libraries, as one of the agencies of popular education, is beginning to 
attract the attention of those engaged in educational work, and it is especially important 
that matters pertaining to the history of the States, and of the country, should be made 
the special purpose of our State Libraries." 

Nearly all the States have provided law libraries for their judiciary, but very few of them 
have fully recognized the practical value of having in their State Libraries legislative 
and governmental records of other States and of foreign countries, standard writers on 
public finance, public charities, agriculture, manufacturing industries, and other topics 
which come before Governors and Legislatures for action. 

According to the instructions of the association, we add to the resolutions brief explana- 
tions and comments: 

RESOLUTIONS ADOPTED BY" THE ASSOCIATION OF STATE LIBRARIANS. 

On State Let/ illation. 

Whereas, The laws governing the libraries of the several States and Territories have 
been formed for each without regard to any other, or to any uniformity among them, 
and this diversity of legislation has resulted "in many ways in great loss to said libraries, 
ami bas greatly retarded their growth and prevented the increase of their usefulness; and 

Whereas, 'i'he State of California has, by resolution of her Legislature, instructed her 
Librarian to call a conference <rf the Librarians of the several States and Territories, for 
the purpose of securing the adoption of an approximately uniform system of laws, rules, 
and regulations for the government and control of such libraries; 

Now therefore, we, the Librarians of the several States and Territories, in such confer- 
ence assembled, do resolve: 

1. That each State should provide for the maintenance of a State Library, by creating 
a fund that should be continuous and not dependent upon annual or biennial appropria- 
tions. 

Most State Libraries are supported by annual appropriations. Experience has amply 
shown that this provisional system of support is wholly inadequate, flic appropriations 
are usually made regardless of constantly increasing needs of the library, and arc gener- 
ally exhausted long" before the Legislature again convenes, while the succeeding appro- 
priation, is rarely, if ever, sufficient to supply the deficiency of standard publications 
issued in the interval, and to meet present and future demands. To keep the library 
abreast with the times, there should be a continually accumulating fund devoted to its 
use. 

California requires the Secretary of State to pay into the State Treasury, monthly, all 
fees of his office, to be set apart as a Library Fund. In most States similar legislation 
would provide proper support for the State Libraries without dependence on periodical 
appropriations. 

Prof. J. C. Rowell, Librarian of the University of California, says of the California 
system: "1 should regard it a very unfortunate state of affairs if the Librarian of the 
State Library were compelled during each legislative session to desert his sphere of duty 
in the library itself at the precise time when his professional services are most needed, 
and turn himself into a lobbyist to raise a possibly insufficient income for the following 
fiscal year. The income for the support of the State Library must not be dependent upon 
wire-pulling and political chicanery." 

2. That the salary of each State Librarian should be made proportionate to the sala- 
ries paid other State oflicers in the same State, and that tenure of office should be made 
dependent on efficiency solely, and not on clianges of administration, political or other- 
wise. , , ., . 

If State Libraries are to reach their maximum of usefulness, the Librarian s position 
must be recognized as of dignity and importance; appointments should lie made with a 
view to fitness; tenure of office must depend on elHciency ; and salaries should be such 
as to secure the best ability. 

3. That each State should provide by law for the speedy transmission, under the direc- 



REPORT OF TRUSTEES OF STATE LIBRARY. 



tion of the State Librarian, to all State Libraries and to foreign Governments, of all public 
documents, reports, laws, transactions, etc., published by authority, and that these be 
addressed directly to the libraries. 

A great desideratum in all State Libraries is a complete set of public documents, 
reports, laws, transactions, etc., published by authority of the Federal Government and of 
the several States. The present glaring deficiency in this respect is due to want of proper 
laws in each State providing for an uniform system of exchange. In most cases where 
there is any law on the subject, provision is made for transmitting such matter to tin- 
Governor, Secretary of State, or some State official other than the Librarian, and it is 
only through the courtesy of such official that these publications perhaps find their way 
into the State Library, which thus often loses most valuable publications essential to the 
completeness and utility of every public library. They are seldom lound in book stores, 
and their distribution should be sufficiently controlled by the State Librarians as to secure 
their being properly addressed and promptly forwarded to every State Library in the 
Union. Provision should also be made for their regular distribution to a select list of 
college and public libraries. 

The several libraries should receive not alone the regular sets of legislative documents 
issued as such, but also copies in their individual form of all reports of Boards, Commis- 
sions, or State institutions, and of all special documents prepared by State authority, so 
that sets of each may be placed in the separate departments of the library; e. g., agri- 
culture, insurance, taxation, education, insanity, etc. 

4. That each State should provide by law — 

(«) That all books published under its authority be properly indexed by a uniform 
topical alphabet, preserving the same heads of reference from year to year. 

(6) That the title pages of all statutes and journals of the Legislature show the dates 
of convening and final adjournment of the sessions. 

(c) That law reports give the extreme dates of the decisions on the title pages, and the 
date of the rendition of each decision above the title of each case. 

(d) That each volume of law reports contain a table of cases, plaintiff and defendant, 
and vice versa. 

(e) That the name of the State, with year and number of the Legislature where prac- 
ticable, be lettered on the back of every volume. 

5. That each State provide for the proper cataloguing and indexing, under the direc- 
tion of the State Librarian, of all publications that have been or may be issued by 
authority of the State. 

The prevailing mode of lettering, title-paging, and indexing public documents is 
exceedingly perfunctory, inaccurate, and misleading. To such an extent is this criticism 
true that the index of a public document often affords no reliable guide to its contents, 
while outside lettering and title page itself often fail to indicate with any accuracy or 
correctness the character of the work. 

Hon. A. R. Spofford, Librarian of Congress, says of this matter: 

"Believing fully in the efficiency of united effort to bring about any reform, 1 hope 
that this plan may be so digested as to details, that a uniform system may sooner or later 
replace the heterogeneous and vexatious methods of publication which make public docu- 
ments the terror of Librarians and the despair of the reading public. For examples: see 
the indexes to almost any series of State documents, with every leading topic sought in 
vain in the alphabet, but hidden away (possibly^ under "Report" or "State" or some 
other equally unmeaning and uncertain term — the same document, moreover, being 
rarely indexed under the same head in successive years. * * Nearly half the States 
persist in the stupid practice of anonymous titles, subjecting all other libraries than their 
own to great cost in lettering the books. There is no hope of reforming this except by 
positive statute — State Printers and binders being constantly changed." 

6. That each State provide for the preparation and publication of a list of the sessions 
of its Legislature, from the first session to date, stating the time of the convening and 
adjourning of each session. . . 

7. That each State provide for the proper exchange and disposition of duplicate books. 
Most States have many duplicates, which, though useless to them, would be of great 

value to other States, but have neither laws nor facilities for exchange of such duplicates. 
New York has just passed the following law, which solves these difficulties: 
"The Regents shall have charge of the preparation, publication, and distribution, 
whether by sale, exchange, or gift, of the colonial history, natural history, and all other 
State publications not otherwise assigned by law. To guard against the waste or de- 
struction of the State publications, and to provide for the completion of sets to be per- 
manently preserved in American and foreign libraries, the Regents shall maintain in the 
State Library a duplicate department, to which each State department, board, or bureau 
shall send not less than five copies of each of its publications when issued, and after 
completing its distribution, any remaining copies which it no longer requires. The 
above publications, witli anv other books and pamphlets not needed in the State Li- 
brary, shall constitute the duplicate department, and the rules for sale, exchange, or 
distribution from it shall be fixed by the Regents, who shall use all receipts from such 
exchanges or sales for the increase of the State Library." — Laws of 1889, ch. 52iJ, title I, 
§ 18. 

8. That the Governor of each State and Territory be respectfully requested to submit 
the foregoing resolution to its Legislature, and to urge upon it the adoption of the laws

REPORT OF TRUSTEES OF STATE LIBRARY. 



necessary to earn" out the reforms therein recommended, and also to impress upon it 
the propriety of adopting memorials to Congress in favor of the Federal legislation here- 
inafter suggested. 

On National Legislation. 

Wiikkkas. The National Government has thus far not given to the State and Terri- 
torial Libraries the aid and assistance which it is desirable should be given; therefore 
be it 

Resolved, That Congress should provide: 

1. For free transportation by mail between State Libraries. 

2. I5y international arrangement, for free transportation of books and other printed 
matter between State Libraries and departments of foreign Governments. 

3. For a lower rate of postage on books. 

4. That the privilege now enjoyed by the Library of ( 'ongress. and by societies, colleges, 
and schools, in the exemption of books from import duty, should be extended to State 
Libraries. 

Hooks addressed to the Library of Congress are carried free through the mails, because 
of the high public utility of this institution. For the same reason the official libraries 
nf the several States should be exempted from postal charges on matter transmitted 
between them, since securing full sets of the documents of each State in the libraries ot 
other States is a part of a national and interstate polity rather than a mere local exi- 
gency. 

(ireat difficulty is now experienced and great expense incurred in trying to make 
exchanges between State Libraries and foreign Governments. Whatever Congress and 
the Department id' State can do to facilitate exchanges and lessen expense, would ben- 
elit individual States and the country. 

Reducing postage on books would facilitate diffusion of good literature, and would 
aid popular education through the libraries, by removing what the Librarian of Congress 
recently characterized as "the present unwise and unjust discrimination against good 
books, which permits all the cheap libraries of novels to go by mail at 1 cent a pound, 
while all other books must pay H cents a pound, thus putting a Government premium 
upon trash, and taxing the diffusion of knowledge eight times as much as the diffusion 
ill fiction." 

Through an apparent oversight. State (and public) Libraries are not mentioned in the 
statutes as entitled to import books free of duty. The rulings of the Treasury Depart- 
ment allow libraries exemption from duties, but the law should be so explicit as not to 
leave libraries dependent on the rulings of the Treasury or the decisions of Collectors of 
( 'ustoms. 

Retained. That the President of the United States be respectfully requested to bring 
these matters to the attention of Congress. 

General Resolutions. 

Wiikrkas, State Libraries are important factors in the educational systems of the 
several States and Territories: be it 

Resolved, That the several State Superintendents of Public Instruction and the Na- 
tional Bureau of Education be requested to unite with us in bringing about the above 
named reforms. 

Wiikrkas, The American Librarv Association has. by the organized efforts of its mem- 
bers, accomplished so much for the good of libraries," and will appreciate so fully the 
objects we seek to obtain ; 

Resolved, That we ask their indorsement of our efforts to increase the efficiency of our 
libraries, and their hearty cooperation in obtaining action to that end; and, 

Resolved, That a committee be appointed to draft an address setting forth in full the 
reasons and necessity for the adoption of the reforms we have recommended, and that 
said address be made a part of our action, and that said committee communicate these 
resolutions and address to all persons whose aid we seek in accomplishing our objects. 

Resolved, That we pledge ourselves to use every effort with our several State officers, 
Legislatures, and members of Congress, and with all who can help us, to secure their 
active assistance in the accomplishment of these reforms. 

On behalf of the Association of State Librarians, these resolutions 
are submitted to you, and you are respectfully urged to take such action 
as will help to accomplish the desired reforms. 

Political Code, Sections 408, 409, 410, governing the distribution of 
State publications, should be amended so as to read to each State 
Library instead of to each State. Section 409, Subdivision 3, should 
read to each State Library one copy instead of to each State two copies. 
Section 409 should be amended also by inserting the word appendices 
after the word journal, on the first line. The following is an extract 



REPORT OF TRUSTEES OF STATE LIBRARY. 



15 



from my letter of June twenty-eighth to the State Librarians of the 
several States: . 

In this State no provision has been made for the distribution of the Appendices to the 
Journals of the Legislature, now numbering nearly one hundred volumes, and including 
some of the most valuable of the miscellaneous reports. And there is no law compelling 
the several Boards, Commissions, Departments, etc., of this State to transmit to the 
State Libraries their reports and special publications. If the people of this country 
could realize the extent of the Federal and State publications, and see what a small pro- 
portion are in the State Libraries, they would exclaim, "Oh, shame!" This state of 
affairs is sufficient to convince any one familiar with libraries that something must be 
done in the several States upon the meeting of their respective Legislatures. The mem- 
bers of the Association of State Librarians intend to be heard in every State and Terri- 
tory, and will no longer be deceived by such high-sounding resolution's (for example) as 
follows: 

"Resolved, That these works shall be disposed of as follows: five hundred copies to be 
distributed gratuitously, under the direction of the [naming some State officer], to libra- 
ries, State institutions, and in exchange with foreign societies and institutions and 
notable persons." 

But will demand that a law be enacted by each State providing for the direct and 
immediate distribution of one copy of all State publications, and will most emphatically 
request the Legislatures of the various States to have them forwarded to the State Libra- 
ries, and not go to the trouble of appointing a guardian to receive them. 

The above resolution had reference to reports of the State Engineer 
mi irrigation, which the State Libraries of the Union have failed to 
receive; and I sincerely hope in the future that the members of the 
Legislature will not consider a resolution of this kind of sufficient bind- 
ing force to compel the distribution to State Libraries, but that they 
will pass a general law to the effect that one copy of all State publica- 
tions be forwarded to each State Library. 

There should be an Act passed by the Legislature giving the Libra- 
rian of the State Library power to close the Library at least once a 
year, and for a period not to exceed two weeks. This will give the 
Librarian and his employes an opportunity to clean and arrange the 
Library, and during this time he should also have power to prohibit 
any books from being drawn from the Library. The work in the Li- 
brary has increased during the last eight years materially, owing to 
the addition of twenty-six thousand volumes to be catalogued, regis- 
tered, etc., and the preparation and compfetion of two catalogues. The 
general work of the Library will continue to increase as the State de- 
velops. The Legislature should provide for more assistance, as the 
Librarian under the existing circumstances cannot take that care of 
the property, and attend to the patrons of the Library, as is expected 
of him. In 1870 the Library contained twenty-six thousand volumes, 
and the register now shows nearly eighty thousand — an increase of 
fifty-four thousand volumes. The force in the Library has not been 
changed since 1870, which was at that time, Librarian, two deputies, 
and a porter. 

With due appreciation of the interest shown by the members of the 
Legislature towards the State Library and its officers, I have both the 
pleasure and the honor of subscribing myself, 



TALBOT H. WALLIS, 

Secretary.

LIBRARIAN'S REPORT 

FOR THE FORTY-FIRST FISCAL YEAR, FROM APRIL 7 TO JUNE 30, 1890. 



California State Library, Office of the Librarian, ) 
Sacramento, Cal., July 31, 1890. ) 

To the honorable Board of Trustees of the California State Library: 

- Gentlemen: I have the honor to submit the following report of the 
financial transactions of this department during the forty-first fiscal 
year, from April 7 to June 30, 1890, both dates inclusive. 

I assumed the duties of Librarian of the California State Library on 
April 7, 1890, and found $19,972 91 in the State Treasury to the credit 
of the State Library Fund. I also found $9 88 in the National Bank 
of D. O. Mills & Co., a balance due the California State Library, as 
shown by the cash book in this office. 

My predecessor, T. H. Wallis, transferred to me unpaid claims against 
the State Library to the amount of $8,270 99, which have been paid 
by me, with the following exceptions: 



CallaRhan & Co Jill 75 

The F. H. Thomas Law Book Co ... 297 50 

T. L. Cole 511 00 

C. S. Houghton 98 20 



Total $1,018 45 



This amount deducted from the amount of unpaid bills, leaves a bal- 
ance of $7,252 54, which has been allowed and paid. In addition to 
this amount, claims against the California State Library, contracted by 
ex-Librarian Wallis, have been received and paid to the amount of 
$721 32, making a total of $7,973 86 in bills contracted by my prede- 
cessor and paid by me. 

Had ex-Librarian Wallis paid the claims in his possession at the time 
he surrendered his office to me, which amounted to $8,270 99, and those 
contracted by him and received and paid during my incumbency, 
amounting to $721 32, the amount of money in the State Treasury to 
the credit of the State Library Fund on April 7, 1890, would have been 
$10,980 60, instead of $19,972 91, as shown by the Controller's books. 

The accession register received from my predecessor shows seventy- 
nine thousand nine hundred and sixty-six volumes in the Library on 
April 7, 1890, but after a careful count, I find that I received only sev- 
enty-three thousand five hundred and ninety-seven volumes. The 
difference in the number of volumes in the Library, as shown by the 
accession register, and that actually received by me on April 7, 1890, is 
six thousand three hundred and sixty-nine. 

The catalogues and cards of the General and Law Departments have 
been carefully checked and compared with the books, maps, periodicals, 
etc., received from my predecessor, and I find the following list of books 
entered therein which cannot be found in the Library:

George T. Clark, late Deputy Librarian under ex-Librarian Wallis, 
was, at the request of Mr. Wallis, and by your instructions, retained in 
the Library to represent my predecessor while the work of taking the 
inventory and counting the books, etc., was being performed. Mr. 
Clark reports that he is unable to find in the Library the books repre- 
sented in the foregoing lists. 

I have prepared, and present herewith, a list of the books added to 
the Library during the forty-first fiscal year, from April 7 to June 30, 
1890, both dates inclusive, which shows that five hundred and eighty- 
four volumes have been received by me. 

The accompanying transcript of the cash book shows that $14,250 84 
have been drawn from the State Library Fund, and that claims to that 
amount have been paid. For items of bills, see vouchers 1 to 122, in- 
clusive, which are on file in this office. 

The rec ords of this office show that the Postage and Expressage Fund 
for the forty-first fiscal year was completely exhausted by my prede- 
cessor.
